  • Similarities?. E.g. More time spent more money spent (a la mega bookstores): according to a series of joint studies in online retail by Bain & Company and Mainspring. According to the research, the more often a customer visits a site, the more likely that customer will spend an increasing amount of money and generate more profits for the online retailer. For example, in apparel, the average repeat customer spent 67 percent more overall in the third year of his or her shopping relationship with an online retail vendor than in the first six months. And, over three years, customers referred by online grocery shoppers spent an additional 75 percent of what the original shopper spent. - http://www.clickz.com/showPage.html?page=331431. To what extent will competition stay the same: eCommerce offers visibility to the smaller players. Can we expect a similar divide online, because of budgets, margins, etc
  • These companies tell you they are you friends. They want to partner with their retail customers. I say this is crap. Now I realize there are some real big boy site design companies who believe working with the vendor on web development is beneficial for the dealer. I don’t. Maybe that’s why some think I’m crazy.
  • But until I see my retail friends and customers making the sort of money the should online I’ll continue to push against the idea of “partnering” Affiliate website continue to die. They are old fashioned. People don’t believe the slick packaged presentations.
  • Customers are looking for real feedback. It’s gritty. It’s truthful. It’s the good the bad and the ugly.
  • 66 clusters, 80 top markets in America, using the number one retail research firm in the world. This data is relevant and the data is fresh- December 2008. We are as far as I know the only company in the furniture business to have done a national study in the last 24 months. What do you think this data is worth in your future?
  • Of the top 7 clusters of furniture buyers- only one group goes down into their 20’s. This idea that only the “young people” buy furniture online is hype. It is wrong. You online storefront and digital footprint will make our break you moving forward. If you don’t like my numbers I would respectfully suggest you challenge Neilson/Claritas not me.

    142. 142. Demystifying the Online Furniture Shopper<br />David Lively<br />
    143. 143. Previous research has estimated that between 70% and 80% of U.S. adults have purchased something online. And according to Furniture/Today and HGTV&apos;s 2009 Consumer Views Survey, 44% of adult U.S. consumers have purchased home furnishings online. Occasional tables, entertainment furniture and youth furniture are the leading furniture categories purchased online, followed by desks and master bedroom. Home accents, such as wall décor and area rugs, have higher purchase rates through the Web. ~Furniture Today 7/2009<br />This reality has presented online retailers with opportunities to grab consumers wanting to buy. And they&apos;ve done just that. The 20 online-only home furnishings retailers highlighted in this report alone sold about $1 billion worth of furniture during 2008. ~Furniture Today July 2009<br />~Furniture Today July 2009<br />
    144. 144. The experts are <br />saying...<br />&quot;If you&apos;re not converting to commerce at your Web site, I don&apos;t think you&apos;ll be around 10 years from now,”<br />said Ed Stevens, chief executive of Shopatron. His San Luis Obispo, Calif., firm provides e-commerce applications. It is a growing business, especially within home furnishings. <br />
    145. 145. The industry is currently selling<br />$12.3 billion online, representing9% of all category sales, according to research firm Forrester Research Inc. These numbers are expected to rise to 11% this year and more than double to $26.7 billion by 2012, the firm estimates. <br />
    146. 146. Jewelry and furniture will pace online sales this holiday, comScore says…<br />“The most robust growth in online holiday shopping will occur in Jewelry & Watches, where sales are expected to increase 67% year-over-year to $739 million in November and December of this year from $443 million a year ago, comScore Networks Inc. projects. The next strongest growth will occur in Furniture, where November-December sales will be up 58% to $1.7 billion from $1 billion a year ago, comScore says.”<br />

    148. 148. &quot;One cannot afford to not be in e-commerce,&quot; said Ethan Allen Chairman and Chief Executive Farooq Kathwari in an interview. <br />
    149. 149. &quot;We knew that the longer we waited on the Web, the more risk that someone else would be capturing that demand,&quot; said Jason Camp, senior vice president of retail. <br />
    150. 150. “We estimate between 60% and 70% of people spend some time on the Web before or during the purchase process,&quot; said La-Z-Boy Chief Marketing Officer Doug Collier. With &quot;more than a few million&quot; visitors to its site each year, Collier said, La-Z-Boy wants to convert as many of those to sales as possible.”<br />
    151. 151. Online marketplace?<br />“In 2009 the wheat came off the chaff in online retailing,” says Nikki Baird, managing partner at research firm RSR Research. “The online retailers that just count on being the lowest price provider aren’t going to be around for the long term.The ones that survive and grow will be ones that run a very efficient operation and give consumers the best customer service and shopping experience.” <br />
    152. 152. The strategy for identifying your marketing targets is based on two tried and true observations:<br />The best customers for your product are existing customers. The people who have already used your product or a similar one or other people like your existing customers are most likely your best customers.<br />Birds of a feather flock together. In choosing a place to live, people tend to seek out neighborhoods compatible with their lifestyles, where they find others in similar circumstances with similar consumer behavior patterns. Once established, the character of a neighborhood tends to persist over time, even though individual residents come and go.<br />

    155. 155. We then use MPI reports which illustrate the PRIZM market potential for each of the DMAs in the study. DMAs are ranked by potential. Each of<br />the MPIs shown on the report is part of a national index of the propensity to be online furniture buyers, weighted to reflect the PRIZM Clusters present within the market, using PRIZM<br />An MPI of 122 shows that residents<br />of this DMA should be 22% more likely than the national average to buy furniture online.<br />To compute MPIs, Claritas calculates (1) the percentage of households within each Cluster in<br />each of the markets reported on and (2) the equivalent of a sixty-six Cluster PRIZM profile<br />report for the product, and then calculates a weight-averaged MPI for each of the markets.<br />

    157. 157. Game Plan Categories Charts are useful in sizing your marketplace. PRIZM Clusters are<br />scored according to their cross section of likelihood to be a customer by their likelihood to purchase a product in general. The resulting matrix consists of a grid of four likely<br />scenarios: High penetration of the households using a product coupled by a high propensity<br />to use the product, followed by High/Low,Low/High, and Low/Low combinations. This<br />opportunity information is directional and does not replace the effectiveness of but instead complements the use of target groups. Custom target groups focus more on inherent<br />demographic characteristics as opposed to sales opportunity characteristics.<br />Game Plan Categories Charts assign PRIZM Clusters to one of four categories as indicated in the chart described on the following page.<br />
    158. 158. So WHAT IS A prizm?<br />
    159. 159. PRIZM culminated years of research and development in a groundbreaking methodology that allows marketers to seamlessly shift from the ZIP Code level through the block group, ZIP+4, or ZIP+6 level—all the way down to the individual household level—using the same set of 66 segments. This single set of segments affords marketers the benefits of household-level precision in applications such as<br />direct mail, while at the same time maintaining the broad market linkages, usability, and cost-effectiveness of geodemographics for applications such as market sizing and site selection.<br />
    160. 160. PRIZM Profiling<br />Claritas provided specifications for a PRIZM profile “Buy Home Furnishings by Internet, 1yr” using the Mediamark Research Inc. (MRI) Survey of American Consumers data. The profile was created from counts of survey participants who made online purchases of home furnishings in the last 12 months. Each MRI survey participant is assigned to one of the sixty-six PRIZM neighborhood lifestyle clusters. Each PRIZM Cluster represents a distinct consumer market segment comprised of households with similar demographics, lifestyles, and consumer behavior. <br />

    163. 163. ~Keith Miller -The Becomers 1973<br />“Through the skill and aggressiveness of modern advertising – particularly on television – we know more about each other’s homes and personal habits than any previous generation has. Advertising has created an illusion of intimacy… I know something about what kind of cereal you eat, what you shave with, and what kind of clothes you wear in every room in your house.” <br />
    164. 164. Three Essential Questions<br />Who needs to be persuaded?<br />What actions does this person need to take?<br />How will you most effectively persuade that person?<br />
    165. 165. Personas vs. Demographics<br />With personas psychographics are more important than demographics.<br /><ul><li>Psychographics provide insight into how an individual</li></ul>perceives the world, along with their belief structures and<br />core personality traits.<br /><ul><li>Have a documented effectiveness at predicting decision</li></ul>making styles and behaviors - including buying behaviors.<br />Demographics, on the other hand, are only loosely<br />correlated to behavior and often unhelpful in predicting<br />marketing response.<br />So why add demographics to the mix? Why embody<br />psychographics in a specific persona?<br />
    166. 166. What Makes Personas Actionable?<br />“A lost wallet lies on a Manhattan street,<br />stuffed with cash. A white middle-income<br />male New Yorker, between 30 and 44,<br />picks it up. Will he look for the rightful<br />owner, or pocket the cash? Who knows?”<br />
    167. 167. What Makes Personas Actionable?<br />But what if its George<br />Costanza, the white<br />middle-income male<br />New Yorker between<br />30 and 44 from<br />Seinfeld, picks it up,<br />everyone knows<br />exactly what he’ll<br />do...”<br />
    168. 168. In order to create personas, you will have to make perhaps the most concerted and in depth effort you&apos;ve ever made to truly understand your customers. But the result will be representations of your customer base that you can use to model persuasive systems that address the why of customer behavior. <br />
    169. 169. Meet some “real” Ms. Joneses from real our retailer’s files (and see if you can recognize the 43 separate data points woven into these excerpts):<br />MEET CYNTHIA JONES: “A relatively new concept in jewelry stores that Cynthia had discovered on a trip to Spain two years ago, her little boutique was catching on here in [city]. Her husband, Tim, had used part of their investment portfolio and his contacts in the banking world to arrange the financing, and her artistic background lent itself easily to the buying and merchandising that made her store unique.”<br /> <br />MEET AMY JONES: “Amy pulled into the garage and grabbed the dry cleaning out of the trunk of the BMW. She paused in her home office to check her email and quickly responded to several messages. Grabbing the laptop, she sat in her sitting room off the master bedroom and went online to check flights. Paul had mentioned he wanted to give his new skis a try, and they had read about a resort in the Berkshires that sounded very nice. She logged on to their frequent flyer program site to verify they had enough miles for the airfare.”<br /> <br />
    170. 170. Meet some “real” Ms. Joneses from real our retailer’s files (and see if you can recognize the 43 separate data points woven into these excerpts):<br />MEET LISA JONES: “I was mortified!” Lisa laughed. “When we showed up in the same golf skirt, I thought I would die of embarrassment! But the golf pro at the club let me start on the back nine, and no one seemed to notice. Hmmm… I think I’ll try the TuttiFrutti Pink.” Lisa and her manicurist laughed over the faux pas and Lisa settled into the chair for her weekly treatment. “What else has been happening in [city]? John and I just got back from Italy – no, we didn’t take the kids, it was for our 20th anniversary – and I haven’t had a chance to catch up on all the latest gossip!”<br /> <br />MEET KIM JONES: “I’m so glad to be home!” Kim Jones took off her smock and hung it behind the door. “I’m starving!” She picked up the cordless telephone pressed speed dial #1 for mark’s cell. “Mark, it’s me. I’m ordering from Papa John’s. Do you want green peppers on the pizza? The movie starts at 7:10. Yes, yes – I promise I’ll be ready this time! But you’ll have to drive me through the bank if we’re going out afterwards; I need to cash my paycheck. Do you want to go dancing or to the pool hall? Or both!”<br /> <br />MEET MICHELLE JONES: “True, it took two incomes to keep them afloat. Michelle’s part time job in the office at a printing company in [city] offered flexibility in her hours and the extra income was appreciated. Her schedule allowed her to be home shortly after the children got home from elementary school. She turned the minivan into a mini-retreat during the 20-minute commute, listening to the local Christian radio station or singing along to a country tune.”<br /> <br />
    171. 171. WHO, WHERE, WHAT, WHY & HOW – NOW WHEN?<br />Persona based advertising can help you discover who you need to attract to your store. You can learn where she lives, what she does and even why she does it. You can figure out how you’re going to speak to the right Ms. Jones with the right media and the right message and deliver the right moment. <br /> <br />The “when” is entirely up to you. Advertising in the past may have created an illusion of intimacy, but you have the ability to create a reality where Ms. Jones will love to spend her furniture dollars. <br /> <br />She will respond when you use persona based advertising to speak to her personally.<br />
